New Quilt Pattern – My Blue Heaven

Back in 2011, you may remember that I organised a Quiltalong on this blog and we made this heavenly quilt.

My Blue Heaven

The quilt is a sampler quilt made up with 12 different patchwork blocks in a selection of colourways coupled with appliqué blocks. And to make it a little more challenging than your run of the mill Sampler Quilt the blocks are all 6 inch blocks. It was great fun to sew and is a pretty impressive looking quilt. It also can be made in three different sizes.

Here are some of the blocks.


I actually made some lemon blocks too but haven’t got around to putting those ones together yet.

For some time I have been meaning to write up all the patterns and instructions into a pattern for sale in my Pattern Shop as I know many of my more recent followers would have missed it.

Well once again ……..mission accomplished. You will now find the pattern in the Pattern Shop. I have named it My Blue Heaven.

However, it’s not all good news. It is still waiting to be quilted! So, I am not quite as virtuous as I may appear. But, little by little I am whittling away at the bucket list.


Patchwork Parfait Quilt Pattern

I am Sew Happy because I have finally managed to add my Patchwork Parfait Quilt Pattern to my Pattern Shop.

I made this quilt quite some years ago and taught it as a class in my shop House of Patchwork. It was a very popular class and the students produced some truly stunning quilts. But, because I was so busy running the shop I never had time to make it up into a pattern. Some of my past students have nagged me periodically to do so and I have finally accomplished the task.

It was tricky to do because I only had my class notes plus of course the original quilt. But, with a little bit of brain stretching and knuckling down I managed to do so and I am very glad I did, because it is rather a lovely design.

It has lots of patchwork piecing.

And some simple appliqué flowers and hearts.

With a deeper border at the top to go over the pillows on the bed.

And some quirky prairie point inserts in the borders.

So, a fairly interesting quilt to make if you like a bit of variety. You will find it in my Pattern Shop and it has some very comprehensive instructions. 25 pages in total with clear diagrams and colour photos.

Phew! I am SEW GLAD that I now have this task ticked off my bucket list.
